Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 71
Hi guys… It’s me again
Why do I feel that this novel is getting more and more harder to translate….
The Kingdom is in Chaos 1
I received the customized carriage from Earth.
It’s compact, lightweight and sturdy, made with Duralumin.
Duralumin, is a mix of aluminum alloy and titanium, it is one of the materials used in aircraft and its quite well known for being durable and light weight. It’s perfect to use on auto-body……..
….It’s expensive, though.
For the suspension, they used an [Independent Suspension System]. It has a large number of parts, which is also makes it more expensive, but it has a good steering stability. If it breaks down, I’ll take it back to Earth and have it repaired. It’s something that only I use, so I don’t mind if it’s irreparable here.
The logo designed by that girl from the orphanage, is drawn on both sides of the carriage.
I can’t help it, we need avoid the bandits!
Although thinking about it, there are some ways for defeating bandits and maintaining the safety of the roads, But I don’t want to do it every time, and there is a danger of sniping with a bow and arrow, or rocks falling from the top of the cliff, so I won’t risk anything unless it’s necessary.
Besides, you can’t do such a volunteer work in other aristocratic territories. The road maintenance in that area, is the work and responsibility of the feudal lord in that territory.
Like Pez-san, a merchant’s carriage is safe inside our territory……
I feel sorry for the ones that had to deal with the evil lords, their accomplices and also the bandits.
Before departing to the Kingdom’s capital, she repeatedly reminded the members of the Viscountess’ House.
[When the officials from the Bozes’ territory come, they must be informed that the Viscountess had gone to Capital, and insist that she departed a long time ago.]
[Never let the surrounding territories, to look around and observe, they must never realize that she is looking for money-making materials and she also said that she would not be able to come back from time to time, because she must never be seen at her own territory during the tournament.]
[And if any of Bozes’ family members came, she told the Butler, Anton, to be sure to inform them about the fixed Radio time schedules.]
[Make sure to check-in with the radio before returning with the transition, and keep a lookout on the highway.]
I should be able to deceive them somehow.
Totally, it’s a troublesome work just by handling the Bozes family….
Well, if you get it then, that is fine.
The Earl himself has been given a chance to experience going back and forth using my teleportation.
….I’m a little bit scared if I get caught by Iris-sama though.
With this, I depart for the capital, riding the high performance carriage.
The coachman is me, I have no passenger.
No, Everyone strongly opposed the idea… But I pushed it.
William-san grabbed my shoulder while making a dry laugh.
The carriage is loaded with dried shiitake mushrooms and dried explosive corn seeds, the prototype paper as a product sample, and water candies for souvenirs to the orphanage.
Because the water candy that Pez-san carries is a little more expensive, it’s not something that children of the orphanage can buy easily. Well, wood carving dolls contributes to my personal wealth accumulation, so I’ll give you a little bit of service.
Before this, I added some sanctions.
…Literally, a candy and stick.
The operation of the carriage was taught to me by former prisoners of war who could handle carriages. They happily taught me, because it was a change of pace.
Did you received delicious foods and whiskey as a thanks for working?
The horses were purchased from the Earl. Because there were only a few agricultural horses in our territory. It seems like the Earl chose it personally, a good white horse.
『A white horse will suit you well, Mitsuha』He said….
……..I’m so embarrassed right now!
The name of the horse, of course it will be, Silver. (shirubā)
Now~, let’s roll out!
Mitsuha: 「Hi-yo, Silver!」
(TL Joke: It’s a good thing Mitsuha’s horse doesn’t retort, unlike Kaoru’s horse.)
Since the distance between the territory and the capital is days by a horse-drawn carriage, I can teleport it to any place on the route. But, let’s run normally for a while.
I have to get used to the carriage, and I want to be friends with Silver.
Besides, I am planning to stay at some place, in a town on the route.
I hate it when rumors like [The Viscountess Yamano has never stopped in any town] spreads out.
If you have a track record of staying in several places, you can think that even if you do not stop every time, they will still say [Ah this town was skipped and so she should have stayed in another town this time.]
Although I had not encountered other travelers for a while after departing, but after I joined the road connecting the Earl Bozes’ territory and the capital, I met many horse-drawn carriages and other travelers on foot. More than 90% of the people are traveling to the Bozes territory.
Well~, this is normal.
My carriage is kinda unusual, it’s drawing lots of attention.
Well, it does looks a little unusual, but you cannot understand the materials and performance just by looking at it. This lightness, strength and comfort which only possible by using the modern technology, you won’t know these unless you’re riding it.
It’s much lighter than it looks, it may seem that silver is easily pulling the carriage with a single hook, it looks like a great horse.
….But then, it’s probably because I feel like their curious eyes are looking at me, and not the carriage or Silver.
In the evening, I arrived at the other town along the road to the capital.
There are other industries here, but it seems that the town’s inns are the ones who benefit the most from those who pass through the highway. It’s a dead end and there is no border connecting another territory, damn it. (chikushō)
Even this once, since I’m a nobleman(woman), I never thought that I would stay at a cheap inn, and so when I went to the most reputable inn, it was quite crowded. A group of people who are travelling to the Bozes territory, they’re the kind of people that can afford the expensive inn.
When I thought of going to another inn, an employee who seemed to be in a higher position came to me.
Head Innkeeper: 「What do we have here, welcome to our humble inn. I will show you to your room right away.……」
(TN: Anyone got a better Idea aside for Head Innkeeper? ばんがしら 番頭 さん )
Is this the head innkeeper or the master? At first, I thought it was just an employee.
Apparently she seems to know about me.
Well, it’s along the way between our territory and the capital, so you have information about the Nobles who might pass sometime, looking for a high-class Inn.
But, even though I’m not dressed as noble-ish, I was still recognized.
I wonder if there’s even a picture, circulating?
Just like a wanted poster of criminal….
Ha ha haaaah… (dry laugh)
If you are accompanied by an ordinary carriage or a wagon, this town is too far away as the first stop for lodging from our territory. However, if you came from the Bozes territory in the opposite, I wonder if it is just a good location if you follow the pattern, [when you depart at noon and then arrive at night on the way.]
Mitsuha: 「The carriage is parked in front, please take care of the horse… Please take good care of him.」
Head Innkeeper: 「Yes, of course! So then about, the servants and the coachman who are with you….」
Mitsuha: 「Ah, the coachman is me.」
Head Innkeeper: 「..Eh?」
Mitsuha: 「I am the Coachman, and nobody else.」
It was truly unexpected, head innkeeper-san had a blank face.
However, head innkeeper-san was professional, (rebooting)recovering in a matter of seconds and then quickly directed others to the horse-drawn carriage and guided me to my room.
It’s not so late yet, but I stayed here today because there is still quite a distance to the next town. So there’s still time before dinner. I wonder if I can get some hot water and wipe my body.
I couldn’t just go back to my home in Japan and take a bath there.
So when I took off my clothes and grabbed a towel soaked with hot water to wipe my body, the door suddenly opened.
????: 「Princess Shr-」
Pan pan! (gunshot sfx)
Being armed is really handy.
Of course that’s what happens, if an unknown man barged in without knocking nor permission, to the room of a woman who is naked.
Since the Beretta-93R is big and heavy, I only carry it with me when the possibility of fighting is high or when I equip it at the waist from the beginning.
The first shot made my heart jump, because of the situation, I badly aimed at the leg. (１発目は下手に心臓とかに当たるとアレだから、脚を狙った。)
The first shot is a half cock, since it is fired after releasing the safety lock that prevented misfire, the trigger is heavy on the front side, so the accuracy of the hit is lowered by my little hands, so I was trying to aim for the right shoulder of my opponent with my first shot and the second shot was on the state where the hammer is fully cocked. (TN: credts for Guest_edit-san.)
Intruder-guy: 「Gyā a~a!」
The intruder-guy is rolling on the floor, screaming loudly.
And before anyone comes, I quickly pulled off one of the bed sheets and wrapped it around my body.
It is not the lower side but the one of the sheets on the top. (thin blanket)
Employee: 「What happened here!」
The employees and guests of the inn quickly gathered.
Mitsuha: 「When I was wiping my body, a man with a weapon came in suddenly. Please call a soldier quickly! 」
An angry guest held down the man and picked up the sword, and majestically saying that the sun did not fall yet but still attacked a minor girl. Several people ran to call the town guards.
Head Innkeeper: 「Oh, please wait! Please wait!」
The head innkeeper desperately came over rushing with a pale face.
Head Innkeeper: 「That person is the Feudal Lord’s messenger! I assure you, he is not a suspicious person! 」
Uh huh… What?
Mitsuha: 「There is no doubt! He is downright suspicious! When a woman was wiping her body, suddenly gets invaded without knocking, by a man with a weapon! Also, he can open the door without a key! That makes him a criminal, don’t you agree?! !」
Head Innkeeper: 「No, no, if he calls out from the other side of the door you might refuse the lord’s invitation, so he was told that he have to speak to you directly face to face and so he opened the door, I gave the spare key……」
The head innkeeper makes an explanation with a pale blue face.
However, that’s not an acceptable excuse!
Mitsuha: 「Well, then, are you saying that you accepted the explanation of a man with a weapon and you don’t know whether he is telling truth or not, and assisted in the assault by handing over the key of the woman’s room without her permission? Do you ignore the feelings of your guests and just barge-into their rooms? Moreover, even if it is really a Lord’s errand, it is too fast to know that I am staying here. So does it mean that the innkeeper sent the information to the Lord? In other words, in this inn, you declare that its common practice to sell the customer’s information and assist with the assault by handing over the key of a woman’s room to a man with a weapon, right? And, in this act, the Feudal Lord is also an accomplice…….」
You finally understand the meaning of what you just did, head innkeeper-san, for letting someone sneak on a helpless girl.
Finally the guards came in, so I explained the situation and they arrested the man.
As for the bullets, the first shot scrapes the thighs, and the second shot goes through the right shoulder as I intended.
Neither shot seems to hit a thick artery or any vital organ, so his life is not in danger and it can be cured properly.
It seems that there were some people who were waiting in front of the inn, there’s a carriage, a butler and some people who seemed to be escort guards, they were making a ruckus, but it’s none of my concern.
Mitsuha: 「Well then, I’ll be checking-out now.」
Head Innkeeper: 「Eh….?」
Mitsuha: 「It’s only natural, If you’re staying in such a dangerous inn where the employees sell’s out their customers, camping outside is much safer. And in the future, any members of Yamano Household will never stay at this inn ever again.」
Speaking of which, just now, it sounds like a rumbling thunder……
[The family of Viscountess Yamano……]
[Princess Shrine Maiden-sama?]
[This inn just sold the Princess Shrine Maiden-sama!]
A conversation between the guests, spreads out.
Guest 1: 「I will also leave!」
Guest 2: 「So do we! Settle our bill at once! 」
Guest 3: 「We are checking-out as well, we’re changing inns! 」
Check-out notices were raised, one after another.
Apparently, everyone doesn’t want to get involved in this inn.
Mitsuha: 「I will tell His Majesty your testimony about the man you assisted breaking into my room, is the subordinate of the Lord here. Well then, I’ll take my leave.」
The stable was in turmoil after the sudden departure rush from sunset, but I was able to leave first because the other customers let me do so.
Well, it wasn’t such a big deal since it was just a small horse-drawn carriage.
The other guests moved to another inn in this town and the others moved to a neighboring town…
On the direction of the kingdom where I’m heading, the next town is a little far from here, but on the direction towards Bozes territory where everyone is going, there’s a town that’s relatively close.
Of course I will move quickly using my teleportation.
Moving after sundown is dangerous for a novice like me.
Now is the perfect time to use that line….
『 If you don’t use it now, then when will you use it?! 』
I guess that’s what the “Shoot first, Questions later” means..
Maybe the Intruder-guy is aiming for a “Happy Accident”..
Thus the downfall of a “High-Class, Well reputed Inn”..
